What's New in Version 1.2
We've listened to a lot of your feedback!
-Fixed a bug where scores were misaligned in OS X Yosemite
-Made it more obvious that game options are available
-After each game you can now see number of games played and won (counting from this version onward)
-Added a quit button so you don't have to deal a new game before exiting after a completed game
better than nothing
Plays a decent hand of hearts, decent strategy. On the negative: 1. Does not display points next to each player, you only see it at the end of each round. 2. Doesn’t understand to throw the JD on the high man to preserve the game when you cant take it yourself to win. 3. Frequently illogical when it arbitrarily throws the Queen of Spades instead of targeting low man. 4. Unlike another gentleman who rated this game, I don’t like a game because of it letting me win. Fact is, unless you get dealt really garbage hands, you can basically beat this at will.
Simple and good
This game has a simple clean look, with simple animation and sound effects. It’s very much like the Microsoft Hearts game which used to be standard in Windows, and was my favorite time waster there. While I’m not enough of an expert to rate the playing strength, it’s good enough to keep me interested.
My biggest criticism is the presentation of the score table after each round. The layout of the table doesn’t correspond very well to the placement of the players on the display, so it takes a moment to figure out who has what score.
Having said that I like the minimalist approach, it would be nice if one more sound effect and announcement were added to note when somebody shoots the Moon.
On the whole, though, highly recommended for anyone who just wants to play Hearts without unnecessary distractions.
I love hearts and I love this version of the game. It gets very glitchy, however, mostly when I start a new game. I have to quit the app and reopen it for it to work properly. Any chance that this could get fixed? Otherwise, I like how simple it is, although I would like to see the scores during the game rather than just at the end of eack round. It’s a good app overall!
